Everlyne A. is a 32-year-old married mother of three. She operates a salon in Kondele, a populous shopping centre about 10 kilometers from Kisumu City. She learned her trade from a salon at which she was previously employed. She draws most of her clients from the nearby settlement and market.

Everlyne learned of Kiva partner, KADET, through a friend who was already an existing client. This is her sixth loan from KADET. She hopes to use the money to purchase more hair and beauty products for use in the salon and for sale to customers. She also intends to diversify by setting up a barber shop to utilize some of the idle space in her premises, while serving some of her customers who may require both services.

Everlyne aspires to open other salon outlets, with employees manning each outlet while she assumes an overall management role.

The Kenya Agency for the Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) is committed to economically empowering its clients by providing financial services to rural communities in order to relieve suffering and improve living conditions within those communities.
